Strong Social-Media Campaign
Most surveys and market studies indicate that about 77% of people prefer to use online mode for shopping. This further increases during the Festive Season as online shopping allows consumers to scroll through various options. This is what makes social media platforms a crucial medium for promoting your brand. A rock-solid social media campaign for the brand should be in place, with an emphasis on Instagram in particular. Brand recognition will be enhanced by creating seasonal marketing initiatives to expand your product's reach through well-known influencers. Promotional discounts, side-by-side comparisons, and most importantly, user reviews should all be used to promote products and increase website traffic.
Irrespective of their size or level of funding, small, mid, or big firms are constantly searching for merchandise that flatters their target market. To achieve this, the brand must set itself apart from competing products. In addition to helping them stay trending in the market, a strong PR and communication plan can boost sales and imprint a brand’s name in the eyes of its consumers.
